A large corporation hires a Tribe of cannibals.
And they tell them: “You have full rights as employees, but you’re not allowed to eat anybody.”
Things go well for several weeks and then the CEO calls the Tribe into his office. The CEO says:
“Somebody has been reported missing. Did you eat them?”
The chief of the Tribe checks with his people and says:
“No sir, we have not eaten anybody. It must be a coincidence.”
The CEO is skeptical but he has no evidence so he dismisses the Tribe.
Once they are away from the other employees, the chief turns to his Tribe and asks: “Okay, which one of you idiots did it?”
A tribesman sheepishly puts up his hands and admits:
“I ate a secretary.”
The chief smacks the tribesman and yells:
“You fool! We’ve been eating middle management for weeks and nobody has noticed. Then you had to go and eat someone that does actual work!”
